Authentic French couple run this pastry and baguette cafe with fresh made as you wait baguettes with a huge range of fillings to chose from. Best coffee in Bansko.

I spent the month of August in Bansko and visited Le Retro at least once a day (despite Christophe's unfortunate love of Arsenal). The coffee and food are excellent and both Annabel and Christophe were extremely friendly and gave me lots of information about Bansko. Highly recommended.

Just found this lovely little piece of France in Bansko. Superb coffee - best we have had in Bulgaria, and gorgeous croissants. A real gem with friendly welcoming service. We will definitely be back.

I come to bansko twice every year, discovered le retro a year ago and have been every time i've came to bansko. The sandwiches are excellent and are so tasty. I've just recently come back from Bulgaria, i went for 11 days and i visited le retro 9 times out of the 11 days. Me and my family love it there and they are so kind and helpful! As i am a fussy eater they cater to everyone. As a coffee lover aswell went in the shop and saw Iced coffee. The most amazing thing i have ever tasted. they are amazing and also there is a large choice of syrups to chose from for example, chocolate cookie and caramel. I would very highly recommend le retro its like heaven in a shop.
